Pwned - Simple CLI Script To Check If You Have A Password That Has Been Compromised In A Data Breach

Pwned is a simple command-line python script to check if you have a password that has been compromised in a data breach. This script uses haveibeenpwned API to check whether your passwords were leaked during one of the many breaches of online services.
This API uses k-Anonymity model that allows a password to be searched for by partial hash in order to anonymously verify if a password was leaked without disclosing the searched password.
